That is one legendary battery.
Tampa Bay Lightning forward Pat Maroon, a native of St. Louis, threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Cardinals game on Friday.
The catcher? Hall of Fame shortstop Ozzie Smith. It doesn’t get more St. Louis than that.
Maroon, who helped the St. Louis Blues to the Stanley Cup in 2019 before winning back-to-back titles with the Lightning in 2020 and 2021, donned a home white Cardinals jersey for the occasion.
Smith, inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2002 with 91.7 percent of the vote, won 13 Gold Glove awards while playing 15 seasons at shortstop for the Cardinals. The 15-time National League All-Star led the Cardinals to the World Series title in 1982.
